    We are visiting Disney World for 3.5 days. I have a 10 year old and 6 year old. Looking for a recommendation on how to get the best bang for my buck so to speak on the time we have. Which parks, is it better to do early and then later in the evening?

    Hello, April,

    To help you make the most of your days, I'd encourage you to visit one of my favorite websites:  It is from the folks behind the book The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World and offers a vast amount of researched information, including over 100 itineraries.  These plans walk guests through the order of visiting the attractions so you reduce the wait times as much as possible but still get to see as much as possible.

    It also includes advice on which parks to visit and which parks to avoid on specific dates as well as the wait times for attractions.  It even includes an app you can put on your phone.  Just a note, it does have a small cost, but one that I find well worth the investment.

    If you take a look at it and would rather go a different direction with your planning, just let us know.  We are happy to help again.
